sudo chown $USER ~/.netbeans sudo chown $USER ~/.netbeans-registration mkdir .netbeans/6.8 mkdir .netbeans/6.8/config mkdir .netbeans/6.8/var mkdir .netbeans/6.8/var/log mkdir .netbeans/6.8/var/cache mkdir .netbeans/6.8/var/cache/lastModifiedI am not sure it all or any of the
mkdirare needed but it worked for me.
The key to finding this was executing from the command line:
sh /Applications/NetBeans/NetBeans\ 6.8.app/Contents/Resources/NetBeans/bin/netbeansas suggested by Yulia Novozhilova.
You might also note that the
README.html file is in the
/Applications/netbeans/NetBeans 6.7.1.app/Contents/Resources/NetBeans directory.
Hope this helps someone.
